Powerful people are most notably characterized by their ability to engage and influence others, to achieve success for others, and to serve. Melanie Rego is an exceptional example of this.

Educated at Cambridge University, Melanie’s PR days began in London, England where she entered the world of fashion working behind the scenes of ready-to-wear fashion shows and at the front-end promoting couture labels, designer accessories, fragrances and retail destinations. In 2001 Melanie launched her own agency in Canada.
Since founding elevator communications Melanie has built a rich and diverse client portfolio that includes food and beverage, travel and tourism, home décor, appliances, skincare, fashion and accessories.
Melanie has been recognized several times in her industry for elevator’s award-winning PR work in digital communication, brand building, special events, product launches and community relations.
She resides in Toronto with her love Dr. Jean Eid, an academic specializing in Econometrics & Statistics, her daughter Scarlet, and Tommy, their family cat. Her free time is typically spent enjoying the outdoors and sharing meals with family and friends. She works and lives to vacation. While vacationing, she’s already planning the next trip!
On her own initiative, Melanie raised thousands of dollars in gift vouchers for our agency. The community needs more engaged business leaders like Melanie because ‘children depend on all of us'.
